In recognition of the thirtieth anniversary of the return to democracy in Argentina, after a military dictatorship claimed approximately 30,000 lives (1976-83), IC students shed light on the continued search for the missing children and grandchildren of the dictatorship period.
IC Teatro will perform the play "A propósito de la duda" this Friday, September 27th, as part of the conference entitled "Democracy and Dictatorship: Past and Present" taking place at Cornell University.
